Loudoun County Cybersecurity Professionals Meetup

December 5, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Launched in March, 2021, this Meetup provides opportunities for cybersecurity professional development and networking for anybody in the greater Loudoun County, VA area. We’re open to cyber practitioners, consultants, trainers, policymakers, software vendors, students, etc. This Meetup is intended as an informal forum for the people who seek knowledge of the current state, status, challenges, successes, and emerging topics in governmental and general cybersecurity technologies.

As of June, 2021, we have transitioned to in-person meetings. Meetings will feature a speaker on a topic of interest for about 20-30 minutes, encouraging questions and discussion, and then allow for networking to include announcements by jobseekers/employers and startups who want to give their elevator pitch on a new cyber company, idea, or technology. Join this conversation as we discuss the most important issues of the day, as they concern the intersections of technology, government, business, and people.

If you require a reasonable accommodation for any type of disability in order to participate in Loudoun County Cybersecurity Professionals, please contact Katie Fleger at 703-737-8612 (TTY 711). Three business days advance notice is requested.

Join us on December 5 for our next Loudoun Cyber Meetup!

On November 14 we had another record turnout at our Meetup, so thank you to all of you who came out. Our speakers were Paul Fox from CHIEF Technologies and Ross Foard from CISA, on the topic of Zero Trust. Paul and Ross outlined their core Zero Trust Network principles: verify, give minimal access, and assume breach. Thank you to Ross and Paul for the briefing!
